Trust wins top catering award

April 18, 2011

Our trust’s head of estates and facilities, Neil Hathaway, was delighted to receive the Cost Sector Catering Award for healthcare on April 14, 2011.

The Cost Sector Catering Awards provide the highlight of the foodservice and catering calendar that offers the people who work in it the chance to be judged by their peers and come through to win industry-wide recognition. It is the highest acknowledgement of merit that can be bestowed from within the foodservice industry.

The healthcare award is for professionals working in non-contract catered establishments within the National Health Service or independent healthcare sector. The award will is given to the executive who has best demonstrated an improvement in patient meal provision.

Judges said Neil's pioneering approach has seen him oversee the removal of the cook-freeze concept across all his trust's sites and replace it with fresh and home-grown food prepared from scratch by the Trust's own catering staff.

Well done to Neil and all of the team!
